Overview
This is an easy-to-read paperback book that provides comprehensive education in four areas: recording administrative & financial data, health care and legal documents, post-mortem care, and preservation of stories and mannerisms. The book is also interspersed with real-life anecdotes of drama and trauma that occur when someone leaves a mess to clean up after their passing.
Description
Getting your affairs in order is a task everyone should do if they want to have the last word in what happens to them, save hundreds or thousands of dollars for their heirs, and be loving, kind and compassionate to the people they love the most at a time when it means the most. However, few people actually invest the time, energy and money to do it. Interspersed with personal anecdotes and appropriate humor, Leaving Lightly takes a light approach in explaining to the reader what it means to get their affairs in order. It also provides a concrete and sequential guide on how to do it.
